The CEU Cardenal Herrera University held the official closure of the 2023 SWICEU project on Wednesday, May 10, 2023. The Grade 11 students who have collaborated in this research and their teacher, Ms. Nonay, joined the event to hear the presentation of the results and receive their participation diplomas.
SWI CEU is a scientific project aiming to find microorganisms with potential antibiotics properties while raising awareness about the increase in bacterial resistance. Lab work is guided by university students who visit the schools and teach students to isolate microorganisms.
The closing ceremony included the presentation of the “instructional formats” created by the participant schools. In this year’s edition, ASV students rewrote the lyrics of Meghan Trainor’s “Made You Look” hit to tell a story about good use of antibiotics. “Our students are very happy to have participated in this research and have learned a lot from the UCH mentors assigned this year,” Ms. Nonay says.
